Continuing the discussion from Dallas Makerspace Show and Tell - March 2017:
[quote="John_Marlow, post:13, topic:17835, full:true"] Beautiful! And it clearly uses a lot of different types of skills. Well done. I'm sure she will really enjoy it.
The wood is also beautiful. What kind of wood is it?
[quote="jast, post:14, topic:17835"] :slight_smile: I'm wondering if it's left aromatic, or finished... [/quote]
[quote="gsommers, post:15, topic:17835, full:true"] @John_Marlow and @jast, I originally was going to do a cherry top but it wasn't turning out like I wanted and the scale was wrong (too thin). At 11th hour, I switched to cedar. It was a couple cedar 4x4s from Home Depot that are supposed to be fence posts! Used the band saw to make them 2X4s and I was off and running. Finish is several coats of poly to protect if a glass is left on it. (And base finish is black primer followed by a black "hammered" spray paint.) [/quote]
[quote="Owen_Soccer22, post:16, topic:17835, full:true"] Nice project. It would make for a great "make and take" advanced metal/wood class. [/quote]
[quote="gsommers, post:17, topic:17835, full:true"] Just don't make it triangular! Way too much time involved in the angles... [/quote]
[quote="jswilson64, post:18, topic:17835"] A six-month project class. I'm in! :smiley: [/quote]
